Indirect Tax

Indirect taxes pervade every area of a company’s business. Their impact on material and product costs, cash flow, profitability and, ultimately, on shareholder value is an important element to stay ahead in competition.

Our team comprises over 600 indirect tax professionals across India, spread over offices in 8 major cities of the Country. We provide comprehensive advice and assistance on various indirect tax levies including Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Customs duty. We offer expert advice on all aspects of the foreign trade policy, free trade agreements, cross-border supply chains and anti-dumping duties. We also provide litigation support before adjudication and appellate authorities up to the Tribunal level and brief counsels for matters beyond the Tribunal.

PwC also offers extensive Navigate Tax solutions for efficient management of GST related compliances.

With GST having completed its third year, we are pleased to present our latest report, Reimagining GST@3. The report presents a recap of the GST journey in the last one year, key legislative and procedural developments introduced by the Government, the impact of COVID-19 on key sectors in India, emerging trends and the road ahead – a reimagining of GST for the future.
